Draught@Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Dusky, dark looks with a thin tan wig. Nose and flavour was roasty with dark fruit and hops lurking. Smooth with a good malt profile, pleasing bitterness and nicely contained booze.Dryish finish. Good stuff.

16 oz can from "Lifesource" Salem. $2.95
Again ,as with the Siamese Twin, the pour is horrendous..a gentle pour ensures a glass 90% foam. Is there some sort of trouble with transportation or at canning..oh well heres another 10 minute wait to taste the stuff.
OK after a long thirsty wait here goes.
Typical baltic porter body..almost black yet with mahogany aspects on the edge. Actually a nice ,tight,creamy tan head..when its under control.
Aroma is pleasng.. fresh ground coffee bean,cocoa nibs,,touch of aniseed, a faint aroma of medicinal liquorice. Very nice.
Taste is the same as the aroma basically..with a little alcoholic warming and some blackcurrant.
The mouthfeel is slightly over carbonated for style but OK and finally get some strong liquorice goodness.
Over all a nice beer..but i dont know if i want to buy anything else from this brewer to drink with friends..as waiting for the froth monster to shrink isnt really my thing.

Looks like coffee with a rich brown color with a thin brown head. Aroma and taste are both coffee with a rich treacle edge. Well done, and not really what I expected from a BP. $3.5/16oz

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce can. Pours black with a large, long lasting, off white head. Aroma has roast and some licorice - minor booziness. Taste is sweet with the anise jumping on the tongue. There is some dark maltiness cutting the sweetness down. The palate is a little lively on the tongue and finishes alcohol free. Pretty solid find from whole foods.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can shared thanks to Tim and Rachel! Pours a translucent brownish black with thin off-white head that sticks nicely. Aroma is toasted malt and soy, taste is like a soy flavored colds with a touch of coffee. Was expecting a bit more, not bad but not great. Almost has a Belgian yeast flavor.
